Looking ahead to Fear the Walking Dead 411, fans will see how Morgan fared in the storm and what happens when he meets some interesting new people.

It’s not often that you can bring moments of levity to a show set in the middle of the zombie apocalypse and collapse of civilization, but Fear the Walking Dead is getting a shot of comedy in this week’s episode, “The Code.” Having seen the episode for myself, I can tell you it’s well worth tuning in to see for yourself because it really works in the most delightfully unexpected way.

Fear the Walking Dead 411 introduces three new recurring characters to the series, and they’re about as diverse as you can imagine. One new face, a character by the name of Wendell (brilliantly brought to life by Daryl “Chill” Mitchell), is in a wheelchair but he’s not letting that get in his way. At all. “The Code” introduces three of the newest faces on the show, and in doing so we see a side to life in the apocalypse that we haven’t really seen a lot: Not everyone is doing poorly, and that means they’re able to maintain a sense of humor.

There’s no need to rehash the fact that many fans have been divided over season 4, but after the amazing performances from Alycia Debnam-Carey and Alexa Nisensen in “Close Your Eyes,” it would be a good idea to give “The Code” a try. These new characters bring a different perspective to the group that is fresh and fun and something we haven’t had a chance to explore between the two shows.

The previews have already indicated that “The Code” is a Morgan-centric episode, but come Monday morning people will be talking about the new characters. In addition to Mitchell’s Wendell you’ll meet Mo Collins’ Sara and Aaron Stanford’s Jim. These three characters are very unique in that you can’t point to one and say that “she’s like Carol” or “he’s like Rick” because they are very new and the jury is still out on whether they can be trusted. But they are fun to watch and they make “The Code” a lot of fun as a result.
